1) Hot Cocoa Favors (via

I’m excited to introduce you all to Michelle Edgemont! Michelle is based in Brooklyn, New York and creates one-of-a-kind design concepts, styling and flowers for weddings + parties. She is joining the GWS team as one of our DIY contributors and I’m excited to see what great DIY concepts she will bring to GWS this coming year. :)
Her first DIY is seriously the cutest – individual hot cocoa’s in funky flavors! Perfect for wedding favors, party favors – or even Christmas gifts! And the best part? They are so easy to make! Win Win. Thanks so much Michelle!

What You’ll Need:

• Clear glass vials with cork lids
• White Cardstock
• Scissors
• Basic Hot cocoa mix
• Edible Lavender (you can find here)
• Dried Orange Peel
• Chopped Cinnamon Sticks
• Chopped Dark Chocolate
• Teaspoon
• Hole Punch
• Gift Tags Printable File or create your own tags

You’ll find the hardest part of the DIY is gathering all the materials. :) Once you have them the favors are easy to make!

Step 1: Fill your glass vials ¾ of the way with the hot cocoa mix.

Step 2: Fill the rest of the vial with the flavor ingredient of your choice. Here I used dried orange peel, lavender, chopped cinnamon sticks, and chopped dark chocolate to create interesting flavors. Mountain Rose Herbs is a great resource for bulk dried herbs and flavorings.

Step 3: Print out the printable gift tags, cut them out, and punch a hole in each. Tie each onto it’s coordinating flavor of hot cocoa with a gold thread. Push in the cork. All done!

To drink, mix the whole vial with 1 cup of steaming hot milk. Top with whipped cream and enjoy.
